“This is a fine, three movement work for solo bass trombone. The three movements are highly evocative and pose good but reasonable challenges on the performer. Valve trills, multiphonics, nimble technique, fast tonguing and soft, legato playing in the pedal register are all required but well rewarded.” - Doug Yeo, bass trombone Boston Symphony Orchestra
